Amazon’s FreeTime and other products for children

Listen to Larry Magid and Kurt Beidler discuss Amazon Freetime and other Amazon products aimed at children

Amazon has made a big push when it comes to products for kids. There are special kid-friendly versions of the company’s Amazon Fire tablets and its Echo Dot speakers that offer parental controls, lots of extra kid content and even a special “no questions asked” two-year warranty” to protect them from child-induced damage. Amazon also offers FreeTime Unlimited,  a monthly subscription that offers thousands of content titles for children ages three to twelve years old.

To find out more about the products and services and how Amazon handles safety and privacy, ConnectSafely.org CEO and CBS News Tech Analyst Larry Magid spoke with Kurt Beidler Director and General Manager, Amazon FreeTime, Digital Products for Kids and Families.
